Living with Rainwater: a guide to working with nature to make your neighbourhood more flood proof
The Lost Effra project has produced a new, free guide called Living with Rainwater, which shows how residents of towns and cities can reduce local flood risk, whilst also creating natural spaces that can benefit people and wildlife. It is part of a London Wildlife Trust led initiative that celebrates local action in and around Herne Hill to promote sustainable rainwater management through working with nature. From taking up tarmac, creating green roofs on bike sheds, digging special rain gardens and installing water butts, Living with Rainwater gives simple ideas of what local people can do to support wildlife and increase our resilience to flooding. The guide is available at issuu.com/londonwildlifetrust/docs/living-with-rainwater and for more information about the project please visit www.wildlondon.org.uk/lost-effra-project.
